Sourav Ganguly, the president of BCCI, has revealed that a corrupt approach was made to a player during the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament. Ganguly, after the BCCI Annual General Meeting, also revealed that the player had reported the said approach. “Even in the Syed Mushtaq, I was told that one of the players was approached but I don’t know the exact name. But there was an approach made and he reported it,” Ganguly said at a press conference after the BCCI’s Annual General Meeting. Ganguly made the revelation when asked about the fixing scandals that rocked the Tamil Nadu Premier League and Karnataka Premier League. "Yes, we have dealt with it. We have spoken to the respective states. The Karnataka Premier League is on hold now, till all this gets cleared. There is one in Chennai, Saurashtra, and Mumbai. For Saurashtra and Mumbai, there haven't been any complaints, but in Chennai, there have been a couple of complaints, but we will deal with it" he said.
